For the last few weeks, Isaias Santana Diaz of D’Crossier has been teasing a new cigar for the company’s portfolio, one packaged in jars.
Earlier today, the company announced the Flor de D’Crossier Selection 512, a new six-vitola line that will begin shipping next week.. The line is described as medium-bodied and uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Costa Rican sumatra binder and filler tobaccos from Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic.
Three sizes will come in 20-count jars—Coloniales (5 1/8 x 44, $6), Corona Gorda (5 1/2 x 46, $6.20) and Hermosos #2 (5 7/8 x 48)—while the other three will be packaged in jars of 15: Magnificos (5 7/8 x 52, $7.20), Campana (6 x 54, $7.60) and Geniales (6 1/2 x 54).
The cigar bears the name of Santana and his business partner, Jose Timoteo Gonzales Ferrer.
D’Crossier makes cigars at its Pure Aroma Cigars S.A. factory in Costa Rica. The company recently announced a new deal that will see Espinosa Premium Cigars handling its distribution.
Update (June 5, 2015) — The cigars began shipping on June 4.
